ACL INJURY ASSESSMENT

Diagnosing and treating ACL injuries since 1985, THE BRIDGE knows knees. 

If you’ve recently suffered a knee injury, speaking with a professional is always a good first step. After a thorough assessment of your anatomy and goals for the future, we can put together a plan for how to proceed to get you on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

Did You Know…

Evaluation of the ACL should be performed immediately after an injury if possible, but is often limited by swelling and pain. When performed properly, a complete knee examination is more than 80 percent sensitive for an ACL injury.

Your initial exam includes:

  • A complete documentation of your present injury as well any past injuries
  • An individualized, hands on examination of your knee to determine, extent of knee swelling, ligament testing to determine stability, cartilage/meniscus testing, and evaluation of other knee structures as necessary
  • First steps for acute injury management
  • Referral for further investigation as required

REHAB & TRAINING

Full Continuum of Care

The KNEEFIT ACL rehab program has been developed through decades of clinical experience rehabbing serious knee injuries and continues to be informed by current research.

From prehab and post-surgical recovery with a physio to sport-specific strength training with our coaches to psychology services to help process the mental impacts of a serious knee injury, we support our patients all the way from injury to full recovery.

Did you know…

Returning to knee-strenuous sport BEFORE 9 months after ACL surgery was associated with a 7-fold increased rate of sustaining a second ACL injury.

ACL re-injury rates are lowered by 24% per month past month 6

A 10% increase in quad strength was associated with a 30% decreased risk for re-injury

PHASE-BASED REHAB

Our phase-based rehab process is embedded with objective and subjective testing based on recent ACL rehabilitation research. We use these measures to take the guesswork out of your rehab and inform our decision of when we can safely and efficiently progress athletes into the next phase of our protocol.

A facility tailored to athletes

To properly return to activity post-ACL injury, you need to simulate and train in the same way you’ll play. Our facility features a fully-equipped gym to build strength and a large turf area to progress back to higher-level movement with speed/agility training.

Return-to-sport Testing

 

Test, don’t guess

Many athletes feel uncertain about returning to competition after an ACL injury, even if they have been approved to go back. We provide a comprehensive 15 item testing protocol to get you back to your sport with full confidence:

  • Objective strength measurements
  • Video Analysis of hop tests & cutting/landing patterns
  • Psychological Testing questionnaires

Injury Prevention

 

Proactive protection

Unfortunately, knee injuries are extremely common among athletes at all levels. Damage to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is serious – and has the potential to be career ending.

Based on latest research, our KNEEFIT programs teach athletes and coaches the techniques and exercises to help prevent injuries and improve performance.

Did you know…

>  ACL Injury Prevention Programs can decrease ACL injury rates from 50% – 67%

>  Females are at 6 – 9.2x higher risk of ACL injuries than males involved in the same sports

Individual Kneefit Prevention Training

Athletes can work with our team of physios and strength coaches to reduce the risk of injury and build strength through an individualized 6-week training program. Included is a detailed video risk assessment, 1-on-1 training sessions, a home exercise program and re-testing at the end of the program.

TEAM KNEEFIT PREVENTION PROGRAM

Team KNEEFIT is a 90-minute information and teaching session for teams of all levels & sports along with their coaching staff and trainers to help identify athletes at high risk through video analysis and to adjust their warmup to help prevent ACL knee injuries.

What Our Patients Are Saying

“What a beautiful facility – but it’s not just the shiny new penny. Excellent staff – attentive and accomplished.

For at least 24 months now, my son has been suffering from sore knees and hamstrings. He had been under the care of other physical therapists but to no lasting effect.

But since moving over to The Bridge, the specialized exercises and attention have had an immediate and extremely beneficial effect and he’s never felt better.”

What Our Patients Are Saying

“If there were 100 stars, that’s the review they would be getting! The Bridge is an amazing facility supported by fantastic staff.

I ruptured my Achilles almost a year ago now and they have helped me through it all. The journey was not only physical, but mental as well, and the staff supported me immensely.”

What Our Patients Are Saying

“I’m pretty sure I am a walking billboard ad for The Bridge at this point from how many people I have told about this wonderful place. I cannot recommend this place enough!! From all of the friendly staff and overall inclusive atmosphere.

I’ve been to other physio places and have seen other physiotherapists before and they all pale in comparison to The Bridge.”

What Our Patients Are Saying

“After years of physio and chiro that I thought was sufficient enough (I thought I would have to live with my pain forever), I was referred here and it has made an enormous difference.”

What Our Patients Are Saying

“I’ve returned to The Bridge for the third time in five years. I learn so much about how to stay active every time. Each time I walk away with the information and tools I need to take care of myself and be stronger.”
